While in other countries what can be called a seditious act, there are many in India, politicians included that can get away with such statements till now. In a shocking incident, just a days after ghastly Pakistan sponsored Pulwama attack, actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan has endorsed the sentiments of the terrorist state of Pakistan when he sought a ‘referendum’ in Jammu and Kashmir, reported Times Now.

He accuses both India and Pakistan of tampering with the lives of Kashmiris, Makkal Needhi Maiam Chief (MNM) Kamal Haasan attempted to push Pakistan narrative of holding a referendum on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir.

Addressing a gathering at Chennai, Kamal Haasan lashed out Indian government stating that over the years they have acted foolishly in dealing with Pakistan. If we want to prove that we are more responsible, then we must avoid such irresponsible politics over the issue, said Haasan.

“Why are our soldiers losing their lives in Kashmir? I feel very regret when people say that soldiers are going to Kashmir to lay down their lives. The army itself is an old fashioned thing. Similar to how we decided that we will not kill each other, likewise a time will come when we will stop fighting. Has not the civil society learned that in the past 10 years? Stop fighting with Pakistan. The soldiers who are protecting us should not die,” said Kamal Haasan.

“Why isn’t the Indian government holding a referendum in Kashmir? Who is it they are afraid of? If leaders of both countries behave properly, then there will be no reason for the death of our soldiers, the line of control will be under control” said Kamal Haasan.

Referring Jammu and Kashmir as ‘Azad Kashmir’, the actor-turned-politician said, “The government should talk to the people of Kashmir and ascertain their views by holding a plebiscite. Do they want to divide all the nations? Why do not you ask them again? Will not they do that? Now, this (Kashmir) belongs to India, the same situation remains across the border. In Azad Kashmir, people are using pictures of jihadis in trains to depict them as heroes, it is not a good thing,” said Kamal Haasan.

Kamal Haasan jumped into national politics by launching a political party ‘Makkal Needhi Maiam’ in February 2018. Kamal Haasan has also hinted of contesting the upcoming general elections. When questioned about his decision to contest the Lok Sabha elections, Kamal Haasan said one should fight elections after entering politics.
